on the appropriations committee, that sequestration is unlivable. >> that being the defense industry. >> yes, mostly. on top of that, the next which takes spending to $967 billion almost comes exclusively out of defense. another $20 billion cut around january 15th strictly from defense budgets. so there's an appetite among the hawkish wing of the house republicans to just get rid of this. they realize that if they are going to get rid of this, they have to give in a little bit. >> weirdly, sequestration is now having the impact they believed it would to get a deal in the first place, untenable budget cuts. i think jonathan's point is really important. this is, if you're watching at home, this isn't the grand bargain. politics is the art of only the possible. the possible in this case is something very small. there is clearly no appetite for brinksmanship again. it is getting what they can get done. not getting into a bigger intractable fight that might shut down the government or cause really hard political pain on either side explaining to their base what they are getting but what they are giving u

air defense identification zone which includes the air space over the islands saying foreign airlines must now warn china of their flight plans before entering air space many the east china sea. now, remember, the china/japan rivalry goes back, oh, a thousand years? the japanese see this as a sign of chinese aggression and are furious. this morning in a news conference with japan's prime minister, vice president biden warned that beijing risks a potentially dangerous confrontation with japan and its allies, which, of course, means us. >> we, the united states, are deeply concerned by the attempt to unilaterally change the status quo in the east china sea. this action has raised regional tensions and increased the risk of accidents and miscalculation. >> anonymously, white house advisers have been more candid. one adviser told -- one adviser to president obama told "the new york times," "it's pretty clear this isn't really about the islands. it's about a desire of some in china to assert themselves that-in ways that until recently they didn't have the military capability to make real.
defense. we're not talking about immigration reform. we're talking about the same subject we've talked about for almost four years. the president, if anyone thinks he's going to repeal it, a little defensive about that. i think the most telling statement is we've learned not to make wild promises about how perfectly smooth it's going to be, the website's going to be. really? we have learned that? the website is the least of it. the whole thing about what it's going to do and those millions of people that lost their plans, overstating what this plan actually does, maybe not understanding what it actually can do. >> he's not mentioning the millions who have lost their plans in california. he doesn't mention the pew poll last week had him at 34% approval. people in ohio said the president is not trustworthy by 57%. this is something so disturbing by him. he keeps talking, press on with the plan. charles krauthammer said the president is campaigning but all the talk in the world may not make a difference. >> obama thinks that he can repeal reality with rhetoric. i mean, after all, one thin
overseas. 20 people are reportedly dead after a suicide car bombing at yemen's defense ministry. sources telling nbc that the attackers were wearing military uniforms and drove a bob trapped car with military plates right up to the gates. gunmen and troops quickly started an exchange of gunfire right after the explosion. most of the gunmen are dead. a hospital inside the defense ministry suffered serious damage and a medical team was reportedly among those killed by the gunman. at this point, no one has claimed responsibility for the attack. back here in the u.s., a scathing report says arizona's four street division is to blame for the death of 19 hot shot firefighters back in june. and that krikcontradicts the un own investigation. they fined them $559,000 for serious safety violations. this includes a 25,000 penalty for each firefighter who died battling the wildfire. according to the report, the agency failed the firefighters by putting property protection ahead of the crew's own safety. they're sited for not pulling the team out even though it was clear the efforts were ineffective.
here. what the defense wants from potential jurors in the case. we are live to update you on that story. also, high-tech planes create a new challenge for pilots even though computer systems on board are supposed to keep us safer while we fly. it may be having an opposite effect in some cases. more about that coming up. jenna: new developments in the retrial of convicted murderer jodi arias. social media playing a big role in a hearing today. live with the latest on this. >> jodi arias you will recall was sentenced in may for the gruesome murder of her boyfriend travis alexander in his home in the phoenix suburb. but the jury could not agree on a sentence to a second penalty phase was ordered with a new jury you have to be chosen. prosecutors want the death penalty. the defense is already trying to sequester the jury. banning updates from the courtroom. but it raises new legal ground. the defense wants permission to ask prospective jurors for the usernames on the twitter feeds. they want to know if jurors have tweeted about jodi arias in the past. one court expert says it is not a big i
advertising category. it's for a company called daniel defense. it ran this commercial last year regionally in atlanta. you won't see it this year at the super bowl. i wonder why. watch. >> in my family safety is my highest priority. i am responsible for their protection. and no one has the right to tell me how to defend them. so i've chosen the most effective tool for the job. >> daniel defense. defending your nation, defending your home. >> that gun is in the spot and that print u about it's nowhere else. but that is their logo. >> what they have offered is said we'll get rid of the gun and just put an american flag instead. >> has that been accepted? >> no. still won't go for that. >> it's not fox turning it down. it's fox in the nfl has told to us turn it down. >> according to a statement from fox, the daniel defense quote here, unfortunately we can not accept your commercial in football super bowl spots due to the rules. the nfl itself set into place for your company's category. so certainly they feel like they're tied behind their back. but these regulations are preventing this commer
and in the senate. to somehow say we want to ease sequestration so we can line the pockets of defense contractors and by the way we're going to do it on the backs of senior citizens in this country, is just an anathema, to me and most people in this country, generally, and certainly the democrats in the house and senate. >> and meanwhile, congresswoman, neo conservative commentator bill crystal, here on msnbc touting a seemingly secret plan, a paul ryan plan that would replace the affordable care act. can you give us any intel on what that secret plan is? >> i think it's so secret that it hasn't been developed yet. i think the republicans have -- since we passed the affordable care act back in 2010, they have talked about just repeal. repeal, repeal. then they said repeal and replace. but then they had nothing to replace it with. so it is really a bottomless pit of ideas that never seem to come to the surface in the republican caucus. and i think it's because they really don't want to have a solution for those who have been uninsured. the 45 million americans who are uninsured. that is not who th
be unemployment attached to eliminating this perk and the director of the defense agency says they've already cut their budget by $700 million since 1993. other military services on the chopping block include the pentagon channel which hosts shows like grill sergeants, a half hour cooking show featuring some of the top chefs as they guide viewers through step by step menu preparation and how to shop there. stars and stripes newspaper may also face cuts along with armed forces radio and television which broadcasts football games and news for service members overseas. their subsidies include 51.6 million dollars for american forces radio and television service, $6.1 for the pentagon channel and $7.8 million for stars and stripes. all of this, some say, a drop in the bucket when you consider what the pentagon is budgeting for fuel for the afghan military alone this year. more than $125 million. and $4 billion it's budgeted to support the afghan military this year alone. but budget hawks say that in the era of costco and sam's club, the commissi commisary may be o they can't afford. jon: thank you. j
systems, with contractors, with high-ranking officials. different things within the defense department are usually cordoned off in situations like this. it is easy to chop the number of troops, easy to chop benefits. the one upside here is the pentagon is finally talking about long-term cost savings. they haven't had to. we're in a new environment. $17 trillion in debt. we've got to be more smart about how we spend pentagon dollars. but looking to commissaries as a place to start is the wrong place to start. let's look at everything but let's look at auditing the pentagon, finding the fat within the budget. let's look at the way we acquire weapons systems. there's billions in overruns and decades in delays in weapons systems. let's look at that before we look at military benefits and pay. >> i'm reading a third of the employees at these commissaries are military spouses. 30%. >> yes. >> that's another level of hits. >> these are community centers in many ways. the commissaries, the p.x.'s are the places where military families shop for a lot of different goods, where families work. if
every congress does like a highway or defense bill or farm bill or a budget. what do we need a budget for. not for highways, defense or food. >> in september congress approved a grant for the minute men missile national historic site in south dakota to include additional parking space. the 113th united states congress. bad at creating jobs. good at creating parking spaces at strange historical monuments in the middle of nowhere. >> heat from the late night comics. capitol hill may not be good at legislation, but lawmakers are good at passing the buck. they point the finger at the democratic-controlled senate. >> to date the house passed nearly 150 bills. this congress that the united states senate has failed to act on. the senate, the president, and i continue to stand in the way of the people's priorities. >> democrats led by the president blame house republicans for the reluctance to compromise. >> let me end by addressing the elephant in the room. the seeming inability to get anything done in washington these days. if you still don't like obama care and you know you don't, even tho
violence self-defense when it was the most logical and yet deeply courageous thing to do. he had done hard time in prison and he had come out on outside showing us black people could take courageous stands and sur vooifg vif being on point as leader of a great movement and thrive on the other side. even though they embraced violence at one side as self-defense could embrace peace and unity and bringing people together as also in that moment the most logical and, again, most courageous thing you could possibly did. >> i'm going to open up to my friends in new york. eugene, you were talking before the break, independent of the man himself, the legacy what ben points out, the possibility this could happen in south africa, the man would be freed. that not only could he vote he would become president of the nation. in and of itself laid the foundation for where we are in america today. >> it made a lot of things that seemed impossible possible. it was so fast. 1990 he was out. 1994 he was president, in just four years. it was kind of a lightning thing. i remember the late '80s we were working t
the progress. >> reporter: defense cuts would be reduced by $17 billion. democrats would get $17 billion cut in education and research programs. with $1 trillion spending program being crafted, fiscal conservatives have concerns. there's no guarantee it will pass. the senate returns to town next week. both holidays and weekends, there are only five workdays left before the end of the year in which both the house and senate will be in session together. boehner signaled the calendar is set. >> i made it clear that the house is going to leave next friday, and you all know me pretty well, i say what i mean. >> reporter: beyond the budget, two critical bills need to get past. a defense authorization measure, and a farm bill stalled for months over a food stamp dispute, which if not solved, dairy subsidies will expire and milk prices could spike. >> we must extend this insurance before the end of the year and extend it for at least a year. >> reporter: since the great recession five years ago, unemployment benefits have been extended times, totalling $226 billion. democrats feel like they have lev
to penetrate the gop defensive line. and he is playing to win. joining me now is ari melber, co-host of msnbc's "the cycle" and correspondent for the nation. suze kim, national reporter for msnbc. tara dowell, who is the democratic strategist, and susan del percio, republican strategist and contributor for msnbc. thank you all for being here. so susie, you're a first-time nerd at our table today. talk to me, is this what offense looks like? because we certainly know what defense about the obama care act looks like. is this sort of the president going out and saying, oh, yeah, it is obama care? i mean, i'm obama and i care. >> i think, definitely, the fact that he's committed the next three weeks to every single day, hammering this message home is definitely a decision that the administration made that they have enough confidence with the website, with what obama care can offer, that they can just send that message, every single day, without necessarily apologizing for everything that's happened. i think this is definitely a shift by them to try to change the momentum, to try to change popular
happen. we got the defensive -- so-called defense of marriage act to try to stop it from happening. and now look, it's happening. some states don't want it to, but it's happening. >> it's happening. and aisha, world aids day was sunday and very important we look at this day every year and take stock of where we are. one of the things that is also good news, you have seen a decline in the bigotry you saw when we first heard about acquired immune deficiency syndrome in the ' 0s. that is good news, right? >> that is good news. but also a lot of people left behind. i wrote a report about this last year, talking about the structural barriers that still perpetuate high rates of disease within communities of color, lgbt community, as well. so as we think about world aids day, we need to think about what we should be doing domestically here at home to make sure these folks who are living at the intersection of marginalized populations are getting the health care services they need. >> and, you know, jonathan, obviously, of course, on the down side, you have a lot of states refusing the med
football and the republicans are like a football team with no offense and only a defense. they just keep trying to stop and never want to advance the ball. they have no strategies but they do have multiple defensive strategies. the repeal movement is now dead. the attack the website movement is slowly going away. but now we have a battle raging on in the courts. new york times notes a fresh wave of legal challenges to the laws playing out in courtrooms as conservatives make the case that mr. obama has overstepped his authority. the opposition never sleeps. >> they don't sleep and it is their organizing principle because i think for grass roots tea party conservatives and don't forget, some of the tea party popped up as obama care was being passed back in 2009 and 2010. there are some people who genuinely see it as the last big reach of government especially on something as personal as health care. there's an emotional sometimes bordering on paranoid fuel that some of the republicans are tapping into with that. and it's the only thing that seems to stir their base. and as far as whatever
offensive play, and i mean that in terms of offense/defense, we've seen from the white house in a long time. and for those of us who paid close attention two years ago, it's very much an echo of president obama's major vision for the country, is it not? >> no question about it. it's been his vision really throughout the time he's been in public life. i remember interviewing president obama about income inequality in the fall of 2007. what he was doing in this speech is making a broad argument for government action across the board, not just on things like the minimum wage, but also domestic investments and infrastructure and education, job training. also his health care law. he's always seen the aforfordab care act as one element of an agenda to give a foundation of stability and security economically under people as they try to get into the middle class. he was reiterating that argument today. as you said, the shift to a more offensive argument shows how key it was to get that website working by the december 1st deadline because that is something that allows the administration to shift and
defense. what did that nexus look like? >> it's good that you put it that way, anti-anti-apartheid because that's exactly what these people were. they would never actually come out and try to rationalize apartheid or try to sell apartheid to an american audience. i mean, that basically couldn't be done. but there were plenty of conservatives that had other ways of rationalizing it, the other one being the cold war, right? south africa was surrounded by hostile countries. if you asked a south african government to describe its enemies, p would always say they're communists. everyone surrounding us is a communist, you know. the anc is communist. and we've got to, you know, to struggle to defeat communism. in fact, it was an interesting country, you know, the apartheid regime. in some ways they were -- you know, they had this vision of the world as a gigantic communist conspiracy that was very familiar to a lot of american conservatives. >> i want to look at -- congresswoman, i want to read this headline, they put this up today. this was kind of an ab amazing revelation that came out in 1995.

and perhaps to some movie fans as well. her name is christine fox. she is acting defense secretary. and she inspired the character in one of the flight instructor in one of the iconic movies of the 1980s. >> the mid 28 does have a problem with the inverted flight times. i won't do a negative g pushover. >> we happen to see a 28 do a drive. >> where did you see this? >> that's classified. >> it's what? >> it's classified. i can tell you but then i'd have to kill you. >> my review of your flight performance was right on. >> is that right? >> that is right. and i held something back. i see some real genius in your flying, but i can't say that in there. i was worried that everyone in there could see right through me. i don't want anyone to know i've fallen for you. >> that gives you the cheesy chills of the 1980s. i miss them. she worked with naval aviators. obviously chuck hail wigel a pr manager. she looks a little bit like kelly mcgillis. she was just 30 years aeld. by the way, her call sign in 1985, lex. a little bit of a different era. hr would have something to do that if it were today. d
he wanted them to sort of roll back an air defense zone that china established unilaterally and is threatening japanese and even american commercial aircraft that you have to announce before you enter that space that you have to announce to china you're doing so. it's caused a lot of turmoil and headaches and so the vice president really made that clear. the other big thing in the trip was for the obama administration to make clear their so-called pivot to asia is still a viable priority for them, president obama had to cancel a trip to asia during the government shutdown so the strp was there to say we're still here and still will be strong in the region. >> i'm going to go ahead and change the topic quickly and on a personal note i wanted to ask you i heard that you got into a skirmish with reporters in japan. what happened. >> it was a little misunderstanding. i was the pool reporter meaning i was responsible to sending a report to all journalists in japan and u.s. so i was trying to see what was going on when the vice president met directly with prime minister abe in jap
senator cohn. he was among the republicans to override that veto. he also served as secretary of defense during clinton's second terrell. take us back to that moment, eleanor cook in the last segment set up what a historic moment that was to have a president's veto overwritten. the question of sanctions in 1986. can you take us back to the dewitt playing out in your party? because there were plenty of republicans who voted to override that veto. there were also plenty of republicans, jesse helms, orrin hatch, thad cochran that wouldn't do it. take us back and tell us what that was all about. >> well, i think there were two things at work. your guests talked about this being a vote and debate about foreign policy, about the anc being a proxy for the soviet union and certainly there was the element of communism involved and this was really a support for a communist group. but deeply underlying that was really the issue of racism and the evil of racism and the discussion about communism i think was just an overlay of that, that you look at our own history, how long it took us to try to elim
the rules of the senate. democrats on defense and republicans believe they can just win red states. get control of the senate. a month ago they erased republican chances of winning the senate. healthcare.gov and things look different. >> the president's approval rating is different. he is at 41, 42% nationally. we know what it will look like in louisiana and arkansas. it's lower than that. it's mid-term elections that are referendum on the president. much more so than individual members. we look at folks like mary landrieu and say these are good candidates and run strong campaigns, but at the same time the drag from the top of the ticket will be a serious issue for them. they have to figure out how to do that balancing act. he is not going to be the last issue they will have to figure out. that for the big picture will be where the president is. he is at 41% into november of 2014. even if you are running a great campaign, it may be too much. >> hagan, landrieu without obama in 08, none of them are in the senate. pryor is a different story. the obama enthusiasm didn't get there in 2008.
they're playing full-scale defense and now trying to play some offense, i suppose, on health care. they're pinned down on that and that why republican speaker john boehner made clear he is not giving in, either. take a listen city,. >> when you look at obamacare it's a government-centered healthcare delivery system elm that not what the american people want. the american people want to be able to pick their own type of health insurance, want to be able to pick their own doctor, want to be able to pick their own hospital. that is what a patient-centered healthcare system looks like. >> as you noticed the president trying to change the narrative, and also trying to insist there are real benefits here for the men people if they can get past the trouble in the web site. there are republicans like boehner who notes if the web site is fixed the american people might actually see that premiums are going up for some, sill cancellation notices the insurance companies are dealing with so it's a very mixed picture. >> thank you. so, defining the narrative. that is the task here. alise is covering
. they don't sound like they're playing defense on the subject anymore. the president gave a short kickoff speak about it this afternoon in washington, d.c., and i think it was telling this was the biggest applause line in the speech. >> i have always said i would work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you have good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want everybody to be sure of that. >> on thursday this week, the venue will be different, the crowd bill probably be a little younger, and the president will be forced off script undoubtedly because president obama on thursday is sitting down for a one-on-one hardball college interview with chris matthews at american university. president obama and chris matthews on thursday. the interview can only be seen here on msnbc, this thursday, 7:00 p.m. eastern. whatever you're doing thursday night, i'm giving you plenty of advance notice, you have to see this live when it happens. we'll be right back. a subaru... ...are the hands that do good things for the whole communi

is that for her defense? >> well, look, if she was part of that conspiracy, which has to be proven, and there was an on going conspiracy to conceal it, that could be bad for her. but she needs to fight the theory of conspiracy and she needs to cling to two legal concepts like a life raft. one of those is mere presence. if she was merely present and didn't participate at all, she could avoid liability. the other thing that could shock people is we don't have a general duty the report crimes, like murder, merely because we know they happened. she needs to cling to those. practically a jury might have trouble believing if the prosecution can come up with additional evidence. if she was merely present and reluctantly so, she may have a legal argument there. >> danny, if you're witness to a crime that's become mitten comme was witness to the alleged rapist chopped up in the head and still talking, she was aware a crime had become mitted against him and didn't do anything about it, that's legal? >> absolutely. as long is there's no special duty. as long as it's not your child and you're

is they really want more defense spending but it doesn't seem to motivate that many republicans in congress anymore. the other, you felt really burned by the last government shutdown and want to avoid another one. they have a good thing going politically with everybody talking about obama care and the problems with the rollout of healthcare.gov and they are afraid of distracting from that. whether they can go and convince 100 some or nearly 200 republican members of the house that it is a good idea and convince the heritage foundation and other conservative pressure groupz to go along with that deal, it's going to be difficult. we'll see whether they succeed. >> one of my favorite parts of covering politics. trying to figure out what will heritage accept and the whole country can wait and see. >> right? >> little heritage christmas present. >> they don't actually get their way. it's a question of how much trouble they have to make before republicans realize -- >> make it their way a lot. >> they got the shutdown they wanted for christmas. >> but didn't get obama care defunded. >> it's a fan
